On a stroll after dinner in the historic Gastown district of Vancouver, I explored the newly reopened Woodward’s building on the corner of W. Hastings and Abbott. Since 1903, Woodward’s was originally a department store and at one time stood as the premier shopping destination in Vancouver. Since it’s bankruptcy in 1993, this heritage of the city with a large neon “W” on top stood vacant, seldom used except for film shoots.
I’m pretty excited about this. Well, long story short, an editor at JPG Mag 8020 Media have been in contact with me since new years about one of my photographs considered for publication in their magazine. JPG Mag is a reader submission based magazine where photographers can upload photos onto their website under specific themes to be considered for publication. Voting is done by peers and editors get the final say. Competition is pretty tough as there are many talented photographers in the JPG community. One of my photos were voted for, chosen, and published. What an honor and a thrill.
